10:01 pm
thefirming -- confirming, they e flying over iraq. they know they are there. but regardless of what avenue president pursue, his defense secretary thinks that iran should be involved, his join chief chairman is convinced what is happening in iraq now will not happen in afghanistan, despite the president's plan to pull out of afghanistan in mutual of the same way high pulled out -- he pulled out of iraq. >> talking to iran, about security issues on the ground probably makes some sense. i agree you know there have been sideline conversations. what is likelihood of what happened in iraq visiting

10:03 pm
targets scandal, their attorney will join to us talk about that but first, to iraq. joined by congressman brad wenstrup. he served as a combat surgeon in iraq, very about qualified to talk about what is goin there, u are surprised these development in iraq. we invested a lot of american pressure through sacrifice, and loss of life in iraq. we really did not do what was appropriate to soak cure iraq -- secure iraq and able to make it thrive as we move forward, i am not surprised to see something like this take place.
10:04 pm
>> any time you decide to leave, it seems to be such a deeply divided part of the world that something like this appears to happen, you could be there more ofer. >> that may be, looking at japal there, that is over 50 years. i don't think it would have been foolish that as we eliminateed the saddam hussein regime, and we set up a new government with the iraqi people, we engaged with them, and said we'll be here as many years to come to create a new -- alley in region with you could people would understand that, but we did not do that, we're wishing we had. i feel very much for those families that made sac sacrifics and lost loved one in iraq, though wounds are i'm sure are being reopened with this.
10:05 pm
>> how should we approach this? this is extremeist against extremism issue d. do we use any military approach? >> well military is an option, but i think as much as anything, we have to look at the battle feel looks like. -- battlefield looks like, if i am a military leader, i want to know, do we have an iraqi army willing to fight or sunni or only shia, i would do something on a policy structure to try to encourage the iraqi government to embrace their sunni population, and make home peal a part of the cun -- make them feel part of the country, that is part of the problem. and then what does the battle on feebattlefield look like, addit, what do you hope to accomplish,
10:06 pm

10:07 pm
of the v.a. itself. i think choice and competition need to be a part, we have to make sure that our veterans are taken care of. we that served us, we owe it to them. we have to look at methods to get them into immediate care, a waiting list is unacceptable. >> thank you. >> confidence in president obama is collapseing as his administration is forced on respond to scandal after scandal. from veteran's affairs and the controversial bergdahl release, and the recrisis in iraq, president's approval rating is 41%, matching all-time low of march, approval of his handling of foreign policy is lower, and president also hitting a new low on personal approval, 45 percent have negative views toward
10:08 pm
president obama. compared to 41% with positive feelings. and majority say that president obama cannot lead and get the job done. that is worse than 53% who said the same about george w. bush in aftermath of hurricane katrina. >> senior u.s. official tell us that key leader in deadly benghazi terror attack is talking, ahmed abu khatallah to give his u.s. interrogators a history lesson on ansar al-sharia. and also, transport on a dock ship back to washington where he faces federal charges, i am joined by former pentagon official, and analyst kt mcfarland, what can we get out of this guy? the fact he has been captured is now known hotor his follower -- to his followers and groups, any

10:34 pm
them and think he's probably going to do something that makes it look like he's doing something but it's not going to do much good. he has to face the fact he lost this war. ashley: yeah, richard, would you agree with john? what can the president do here? you know, it is a sad fact, we had a congressman on before who acted as battlefield and he feels sorry for soldiers who gave their lives to restore stability. but frankly, all of us saw it coming, didn't we? >> the truth of the matter is this. i tend to agree, there are three-state solution is the only solution that can work in the situation. joe biden talked about it ten years ago. people thought it was a joke, it's real and the only way we're going to create peace. where i disagree is i don't think the president lost this warm. i think the war was lost from day one. when you take a hornet's nest or bee's nest and shake it up over and over and over again and keep shaking it, you should expect fwees come out. that's what's happening.

10:36 pm
the war in iraq. >> don't give me that. the war in iraq. >> ended a war that was won. >> it was when george w. bush got in the plane and said mission accomplished. >> in 2007 after the kurds, you know darn well. don't go back to mission accomplished. >> he blew it! >> gentlemen! we could go on all night and we're. let's talk about hillary clinton, did you see the interview with bret baier and greta van susteren, she sounded like a candidate and backed away all the questions like an accomplished politician does. >> senator clinton or secretary clinton, depending what title you want to give her is doing political posturing. whether or not she's going to run, i don't know, nobody knows, only the three clintons know what she's going to do. clear she's doing posturing. the book was to create a small day and night between her and this white house, a majority of

10:47 pm
car shoppers want something that's older and doesn't seem like the value is necessarily being hit as strongly as one would see, from all of these news stories out there. a lot of people want cars and whether they're gm or not, they need them. the values are unaffected. ashley: what else do you think gm will do? do you expect targeted marketing efforts and bigger discounts to win back the favor of the consumer? >> i mean, i think they have to be strategic about it. i think that right now, anyone that's coming in with the recalled car, i'm sure there are provisions for them to get a better deal. i think that they still have a long way to go dealing with the whole issue as a whole. mary is definitely suggested steps they're starting. they have a ways to go. but it's still, you know, in terms of that consumer, they're willing to offer deals.
